In what Special Agent Dale Cooper might call a damn fine bit of casting news, Deadline reports that Sherilyn Fenn is set to return for Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival. Fenn played the mysterious and moody Audrey Horne in David Lynch’s original two-season TV series and received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her performance. Deadline reports that Fenn will have a “major presence” in the new installment, though it has reportedly taken some time to nail down a shooting schedule as she is also booked for a recurring role on Shameless. Kyle MacLachlan is currently the only  confirmed cast member for the new season, though Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer) and Jennifer Jason Leigh have been spotted on set. And, from the revival’s teaser, we also know that Deputy Hawk (Michael Horse) is also involved.

Fenn herself seems to have confirmed the news in impeccable cherry-emoji style:
